Illinois Career Services Mission

The Career Services mission includes:

  • Providing a framework for development of relevant policy for career services member offices and the university as a whole.
  • Sharing information of common interest among network members and collaborating for the common good.
  • Collecting and disseminating information about services, campus events, policies and procedures that impact and serve students, alumni and employers who use the career services network.
  • Monitoring enrollment, employment patterns and graduate and professional school admission trends that member offices and the university may respond to with appropriate career services, educational programs and individual assistance.
